Avignon, 10th March 2014 - Naturex, the global leader in specialty plant-based natural ingredients, following rumours circulating in the media regarding the potential acquisition of the Diana Group, a French provider of natural ingredients for industry, in the interest of transparency, is obliged to issue a statement to its shareholders.
The financial media reported in January 2014 that the private equity firm Ardian (ex AXA Private equity) intended to accelerate the sale of Diana Group it had acquired in 2007.
Following recent references in the French and international press citing Naturex as a potential candidate to acquire Diana, the Group wishes to deny this information.
Irrespective of the above, Naturex will continue to pursue its own strategy for external growth by focusing on carefully targeted opportunities offering complementary fit with its businesses, expertise and positioning.
The Group will have an opportunity to outline this strategy in detail when it presents its 2013 annual results (SFAF analysts meeting), 2 April 2014 at 10:00 at NYSE Euronext in Paris.
